Denver Celebrates Battery Appreciation Day
posted January 23, 2012 9:02 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat February 18 at 6:00 PM, Freshcraft
1530 Blake St, Denver, CO, USA (Map & Directions)
It seems like time for another Denver meetup, now that winter (or "winter," this year) has really started to lose its charm.
There has to be something we need to meet for in mid February, be it Presidents' Day, Great American Pie Month, Battery Appreciation Day (the 18th), or National Tortilla Chip Day (the 24th). (Any people visiting Denver from Manitoba can add Louis Riel Day on the 20th).

I propose a date sometime between February 16 - 22.

Since beer always seems to be popular, and since our Falling Rock experience last time was not so hot, I propose Freshcraft at 1530 Blake -- they have good food, good beer, and tables in the back that we should be able to reserve. Also? Close to public transportation, since it's almost right next to Market Street Station.

I will attend this meetup. Any time in that date range works for me. Battery Appreciation has a nice ring to it.

The 17th or 18th works best for me, since I'm planning on being in Denver that weekend to visit my lovely wife. Perhaps a Battery Appreciation Day get-together?

Battery Appreciation Day?

The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.

I might make it...

18th works best for me! Gotta commute....

I'd like to. The 18th-20th is a three-day weekend, which could mean an adventure in a distant land...basically, I'm a tentative "yes." And I vote for celebrating pie.

Providing it's after the 17th... I should be able to make it. I've missed so many recently it's just wrong. Never been to Freshcraft but it looks great! Thanks for organizing, heurtebise.

I'm in. I think I can do anytime 16-22, but I'm slightly partial to the weekend. Also, Freshcraft is awesome. The 21st is Mardi Gras. Homemade king cake is a possibility..

Just to narrow it down a bit, I formally propose the 18th - that seems to work best for most people so far. What say ye, nerds?

That seems like an appropriate declaration. I'll be at Freshcraft later this week, so I'll talk to them about what sort of arrangements we need to make.

18th is fine...

I would love to attend this meetup! The 18th works for me, as long as it after 6pm.

I'll keep my eye on this thread for info!

I'll make an attempt to attend, at least.

Excellent! Already in my diary and I'm looking forward to it.

On the calendar. What do we have to do to make it send memail?
posted by freshwater at 2:22 PM on January 26, 2012

I'm going to go to Freshcraft tomorrow or Saturday (well, I was going anyway) to see what we need to go to ensure we get a large table (and make sure there's not any events going on there that evening). After that I'll make the thing official.
posted by heurtebise at 3:30 PM on January 26, 2012

YES! Count me in.

Also, not to derail, but my sublease is up soon and I'm badgering everyone I know. Looking for digs of my own or a place to share in fun Denver, convenient to RTD. So please keep your eyes open for me, Nigel and Lily (the wonderkatzen).

I had a great time meeting everybody last time... I'll double-check my schedule but I think the 18th sounds good to me as well. :)

Okay, we are on for the 18th at Freshcraft. We have a table for 12-14 people at 6, but I can update the number or time if needed. We can always meet at the bar beforehand....

I'll try to be there!

I'll try to be there as well. Sounds fun.

The attendance tally ain't looking so great at the top of this page--although maybe not all attendees have updated it.

Anyhoo I sampled Freshcraft's beer a week or so ago and I was most impressed. Looking forward to it! See you there at 6.

I'm there! Sounds like fun.
posted by cyndigo at 9:24 AM on February 17, 2012

No one ever seems to update that thing -- I'm expecting something similar to our usual turnout.
posted by heurtebise at 3:10 PM on February 17, 2012

Yeah, fair enough. I believe it's a legally binding thingy and people are quite rightly wary of committing. :)
posted by NailsTheCat at 8:38 PM on February 17, 2012

I'm not going to make it this time. I hope y'all have fun!
posted by lukemeister at 3:45 PM on February 18, 2012

Crud. I'm seriously overbooked for tomorrow, so no time tonight. Have a good one!
posted by cyndigo at 3:57 PM on February 18, 2012

I'll be rolling in about 20 minutes...
posted by Confess, Fletch at 4:14 PM on February 18, 2012

Okay - I got here a bit early to make sure our reservation was okay. We are at the large table in the very, very back....
